Murano. I've always wanted to try it. Run and now owned by Angela Hartnett, the first female protégé of Gordon Ramsay. That was enough to pique my interest.
I finally made my way there for lunch one fine day and was quite excited.
Set Lunch £30
Smoked Italian tomato and basil soup, ricotta toast
Salad of wood pigeon, citrus fruit, sherry vinaigrette
Hand-rolled linguine with clams, chilli, garlic & flat lead parsley
Roasted haunch of venison, braised ossobucco, caramelized celeriac, elderberry sauce
Carnaroli Risotto Milanese, truffle mascarpone
Lemon cream and foam, hazelnut dacquoise, mint
Overall, the food was good, service was good but we felt underwhelmed and nothing stood out, except for the amazing basil flavour from one of the sorbets for me.
It was a forgettable experience for me which I was not expecting but sadly so.
Will I recommend: No
Will I come back: No
Have I had better: Yes
